General Camp is a 10-day camp that offers a fun and welcoming introduction to camp life, activities, adventures and skills. For most girls, this is their first opportunity to spend time away from home and join a community of peers who, while from different places, share many common life experiences. Counselors guide girls with unconditional acceptance and understanding, as each experiments, explores and builds self-confidence.  Summer Campers sleep in rustic cabins with nine girls their age and three counselors. Days are filled canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sailing, dance, land sports, photography, drama, archery, pottery, knitting, sewing, arts and crafts, science explorers and adventure day trips. Evening activities include talent shows, scavenger hunts and dancing. Each bunk group spends a night camping in a tent and roasting marshmallows for s’mores over an open fire. For girls ages 6-12. Dates for 2018 are July 13 - 22. CCACCESSS APPLICATION 2018.pdf


Cambridge Camping is pleased to offer 4 campers the opportunity to attend Mass Audubon's Camp Wildwood in Southern New Hampshire.  Wildwood is a place where kids age 9–17 can take a break from busy schedules, video games, cell phones, and the distractions of everyday life and get outside to do what kids do best—have fun!  At Wildwood, we do all of that and so much more. We venture into the great outdoors, track animals, build shelters, plant seeds, plot courses, and paint pictures. Throughout camp, we build a community where each person is an important part of the group and is valued and respected.  Campers learn that they can master challenges and have the power to make a difference.  Session dates for 2018: Session I: June 24 - July 7 (2 weeks), Session IA: June 24 - June 30 (grades 4-7 only), Session IB: July 1 - July 7 (grades 4-7 only), Session II: July 8 - 14, Session III: July 15 - July 28 (2 weeks), Session IV: July 29 - August 4, Session V: August 5 - 18 (2 weeks)   CCACCESSS APPLICATION 2018.pdf



For Cambridge teens, we offer a paid position with priority given to former CADC campers.  This program prepares teens to be conscientious members of the camp's workforce and encourages personal, group and community responsibility. Before camp begins, CITs meet and begin training with the camp director. CITs receive support throughout the summer as they work directly with the campers and staff to help foster a productive, fun, safe, and exciting summer program.  Teens should apply early through the Cambridge Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program (MSYEP) and indicate that they would like to work with CADC.  Residents and non-residents can also volunteer as CIT, but space limited. If you are interested, contact Cambridge Camping today.
